Church faces difficult times, says Nuncio in Mexico

.- After a meeting this week with the governor of Sonora, Eduardo Bours, the Apostolic Nuncio in Mexico, Archbishop Christophe Pierre, said that while the Church is not in crisis, she is facing difficult times.

Speaking to local reporters, the archbishop pointed to the world’s changing values that are leading to the conflict between the culture of life and the culture of death and how the Church has an important role to play in the fight.

“It is a call to the Church, to the bishops, to the priests to study some issues better and to really know where we are at in order to reclaim some values that society is tending to lose at this time of transition,” he said.

Archbishop Pierre was invited by the Archdiocese of Hermosillo to ordain nine priests and two deacons at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption.

“This has been a very important event for me,” he said.  “In my own country there is a crisis of priestly vocations, and so I am thrilled that the archbishop (Jose Ulises Macias Salcedo) has invited me to ordain nine young priests.  It means the Pope has sent me to a country where there is a response to the call of God,” Archbishop Pierre said
